    I would love two of the Astrolux MF05's, as long as they are MF05vn's.

    If flashlights get any bigger, we'll need a porter or a cart to carry them with us.
    Modded Flashlights: 4 Sky Lumen SLNs * 3 Acebeam W30vn * Acebeam X80UVvn * Acebeam X70vnSD * 3 BLF GTvn90 * 2 TN42vn90 * TN42vn Oslon * RC40vn40 * X65vn * 2 REV-Victor Enth * 2 DEFT-X's * Tmack Lasers: 3 C11s * 2 Cypreus * 3 Tmag super

    I am planning on getting two. One from freeme, and one from Vinh. For several different reasons. Yes, a must have, but not just for only one reason.
    Think of how hostile the average surface of the earth is, and realize half of the surface of the earth is more hostile than that.

    Looks cool but the reflector is too small

    Ah, a host that can finally handle the heat the SBT90 puts out. The battery pack probably won't last long on continuous turbo though.

    You got 8 cells pushing 1 LED. That's pretty good to me on runtime...

    Edit: To be fair I think 8*21700 would better fit the overall monster size theme.

    There's only 1* 21700 cell in this light, and it is in the fan handle!

    This light already weighs a reported 3.4 kg or 7.4lbs without batteries and probably is very "nose" heavy. I'm thinking the head is in the neighborhood of 10.4" in length, so a battery tube extension would help to balance out all that front end weight. Is it time for another monster light battery tube extension ala BLFGT vn CFT90 style?

    The stock mf05 is only rated at 70 seconds on turbo, so the batteries should last a while?
    Now for a customized VN version , we will have to see how long turbo might be extended!

    Next month, I'm coming up on 5 years of ownership of V54 lights. Over two dozen at last count. I thought it would be interesting to compare my last two purchases, one flooder and one thrower, to a couple of my early V54 lights.
    One comparison is between the throwers, Acebeam K40Lvn with XPL dedomed, purchased Sept. 2005, and GTvn Mini with W2.1, purchased recently.
    The other comparison is between the flooders, Niwalker MM18vn with 2 XHP70 AND 1 XML2, purchased Aug. 2005 and Mateminco MT07vn with W2.1, purchased earlier this year.
    The pairs have similar performance to their counterparts, but look at the difference in size & weight it took to get that to performance level 5 years ago!

    Since I am waiting for the restock of W2.1 LEDs and SBT90 LEDs I kinda of just took several days off of work.

    The 21st was our wedding anniversary, 22nd Phuong's Birthday, 23rd mines. ;-)

    Anyhow, back to work today so I will get to all of the emails soon. Thanks

    Here is a fun little comparison of the farthest throwing HID spotlight i could find for not a super expensive price VS the K75VN90 1.75 Mcd. I measured 1.3 million CD with the HID

    I posted results for the KR4, KR1, and D4v2 here. Notice that the output on the mule version makes a huge difference with and without bezel. Even the color of the bezel makes a noticeable difference despite only a few mm of bezel is exposed to light. I think Hank should have made white mcpcb for the mules.

    The GT4 was just test at 32000 lumens and it can maintain it without stepping down. Thinking about buying one but I'm just wondering if Vihn can improve on that.

    A quick thank you to Vinh for the package I got yesterday. I had sent a Ra Clicky with a cool Seoul P4, Vinh installed an XP-L HI 5000k. What a difference! And a PKDL PR1 with a SST-40 5000k in place of the cool white XM-L. Oh yeah, and now it has a driver VN4. It only likes button tops now but that's ok. Thanks again!

    Noctigon KR1vn or Lumintop X9Lvn WHICH ONE SHOULD I BUY... AND WHY??

    The X9Lvn appears to be smaller, which I like.
    The KR1vn will get more runtime with the 21700... not a huge deal for me.
    As far as throw the KR1vn is listed at 166Kcd compared to 110Kcd. Both have similar power output so I assume the KR1 has a larger reflector? I love my throw but sometimes a little larger hotspot is more useful.

    Good vid. I really like the looks and performance of the MC13vn. I could do without the pocket clip though.
